firstAnd to answer your questionthe only reason PVP is broken is because its a time sink,no matter how hard I try I'll never beat someone who outgears me. it does not require any skill at all when you can faceroll as a S3/4 SL/L lock.And this is why PVP is broken, The rich get richer.

I disagree with that being the 'Why' about broken PvP because that's just common sense. People who "worked" for S3 gear will get S4 faster. That's expected that's not something broken.If anything it's the set up of how it groups challenges or lack thereof. Pitting an S1 person against an S3 or some such in arenas. I don't agree that arenas are the problem either. If anything the problem is the emphasis Blizzard is putting on arenas. They want so badly to take hold of this e-sport crap that they're sacrificing anything and everything to make it happen.If PvP is broken, it's because of the players moreso than Blizzard and I'll stand by that. It's the players that will create the rise or fall of Lake Wintergrasp. Blizzard making it the way they are is only a fraction of the problem.AV is a problem because of players, not Blizzard. Players make the concious choice to make it into a speed run instead of the epic battle it used to be. Blizzard could change a lot of things sure but it doesn't negate the fact that the players will still cause their own misery in the end. It's just fact of life.The response will probably be on Blizzard being responsible for creating the system for the players and to some extent I'll agree but that doesnt' mean the players don't have some modicome of responsibility in their own playstyles. Perfect example being pillars in Arenas. Players CHOOSE to hug them, and other players CHOOSE to get butt-hurt because they get tired of chasing. That's laziness not a broken system.

I couldnt agree with you more mate. There isnt a normal scaling going on on lower teams, they do not stand much chances to go up, and they do not stand chance to kill a season above geared player, specially when you put those classes imbalances.But at this stage, i dont know if any change would really help the PVP system, for me its already broken, too many nerfing here and there, adjust this and that... mess up too much with a formula, it becomes frankenstein.

World pvp just needs the racial actions to drop their racial mount when killed at 10% and an honor boost / morale loss for the opposing side and away the game goes.

it does not require any skill at all when you can faceroll as a warrior/fixedlocks were imba in S1/S2, nowadays it's melee/druid combos you may QQ about.

There will always be a class to QQ about. Why? Because just about everyone that QQ's is biased to their own class and Blizzard pays more attention to the biased idiots that whine and just want to win regardless of game structure rather than paying attention to the logical people that understand game balance.Why?Simple, because there are more whiners than there are smart people. Sad as it is.
